Potted Schefflera

Anonymous added on January 6, 2018 | Answered

San Antonio, Tx. We used to move our outdoor potted Schefflera indoors when a freeze was expected. After 20 years, we left it outside during a freeze last month. Damage occurred to the center branch. How can we protect this plant? Someone said to plant it, but I think a hard freeze would kill it. Suggestions?
